I work in the real world with graduate students who are learning how to teach online. Many are already accomplished educators seeking to extend their skills to connect with a fast changing 'real world'. 
 
That said, our Graduate Certificate classes emphasize hands on projects that apply to their jobs right now.  That's the key; what you learn in the online class you put to work in your daily routine. 
 
Every time a student initiates a discussion they are practicing their instructor facilitation skills. Every group project delivers essential experiences needed to lead others through the terrain of technology based collaboration.
 
Since I teach EDUC 764 E-Learning Practicum, I push my students to change their point of view and think like online teachers. We make that transition by having them teach online in one of or graduate classes.  This is real experience, in the real world --- done virtually!
